Saving the spikethumb frog
The Alta Verapaz spikethumb frog (Plectrohyla teuchestes) is one of the most endangered frogs in Central America.
Found nowhere else in the world, this enigmatic frog is endemic to the Xucaneb mountains of Alta Verapaz, Guatemala.
First recorded in the 1960s, it was more recently discovered by the Indigo Field Team in 2015!
Critically endangered, the survival of the spikethumb frog is threatened by habitat loss and disease.
